Submission call: Uruk Press wants short, erotic high fantasy stories - (Expired) Due Dec. 1, pays 1¢/word

ical Google outlook Calls for Submissions For Writers

Uruk Press wants short stories for the upcoming anthology Sex & Sorcery 5. As far as genre goes, tories should be both erotica and high fantasy (or epic fantasy). That means they should be set in a fictional world with different rules of reality (for example, Lord of the Rings) rather than in the real world with fantastical elements added (e.g. Interview with the Vampire).The editors write:

We want erotic epic fantasy stories. Simple, right?
Erotic means sex must be integral to the story. Anything goes – from romance to hardcore – as long as it is sexy and consensual.
Epic fantasy means set in another world. No paranormal romance or anything set on Earth please. We love elves and orcs but we are particularly interested in unusual and original settings.
Stories means stories. We want characters; we want a beginning, a middle and an end; we want more than just a stroke scene.
